3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: This is a Christian town, which means all shops are closed after 5pm and on Sundays. It's a bummer, but the local eateries are nice, and there's some great views. Our river is really pretty. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a lot of things to do, since it's such a small town, but it's super safe for that very same reason. I really don't talk to the townspeople, but they don't seem to hate us...

1 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There is nothing to do in Alma. In certain situations, Alma College is so strict and small that students do not have different activities to do.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: I have a lot of family in the area so I get to see them a lot.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The town and the people are really nice, but it's so remote and empty that there's nothing to do.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I'm from Milwaukee. With that, I enjoy always being busy and experiencing different activities. The attractions are limited. For instance, Walmart trips, Mc Donald runs, and Mount Pleasant shopping days are the only exciting things that I look forward to.
